Celebrate the 80th birthday of Regency Romance with great books from Sourcebooks Casablanca!Georgette Heyer had a handful of unforgettable heroines, of which Arabella is one of the most engaging.Daughter of a modest country clergyman, Arabella Tallant is on her way to London when her carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy Mr. Robert Beaumaris.
